Late Fall Fishing

Recommended Posts

baldav

Anyone still fishing Winnie this time of year. I'm going to be up in Deer River next week doing some deer hunting and would like to add in a little Walleye fishing. Any specific tips for this time of year? If not Winni, any other lakes preferred for late fall fishing? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I was on Winnie 10-6 thru 10-9 every thing we caught was very shallow, 3-6 ft of water. On Sat the 7th we were catching perch and walleyes with a jig and minnow over the side of the boat in 3 ft of water. We could see the fish as we caught them. The rest of the time we trolled crank baits. It was a fun weekend as long as you stayed out of the wind.

Hey Jason I might be up there on this coming Monday. If the wind is from the north, where would you wet a line on Cutfoot? If it's not snowing to bad I would like to try "onemoretime: grin.gif

one other question: what type of minows are recommended on Winni/Cutfoot this time of year? Fatheads, shiners, redtails? Can you find redtails up there? Thanks.

We couldn't find redtails when we were up. We used fatheads and did ok, but we did our best trolling crankbaits.

Next year I plan to make a minnow transporter out of an old cooler and an aireator and bring my own minnows.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?

      Ok..I got it wired directly to the motor battery. 12.44 bolts to the plug. Good. Unit powers on like normal. All is well until I get it on the water. Only question.. since there's power going non stop to that plug. Do I risk draining the battery? I take the unit off when I trailer the boat. 12.44 volts

      I'd be surprised if the lake is entirely open by Opener. I almost needed at auger extension eight days ago when I was up there.
